I am ignorant as to whether
ls is capable of displaying a filetype column.
Doing a quick online search and searching the
man did not reveal such a capability. Is it capable of doing this?
Clarification: This is especially helpful if files do not have an extension.
As of 2018-04-28 the answers have been quite interesting however they did not provide what I was looking for. More specifically,
filedoes give the actual filetypes but it doesn't integrate well with
ls. Specifically, I use
ls -lhtrpG --group-directories-first --color=always
ls -Fis an
lssolution however it provides symbols not a column of actual filetypes.
For this reason I have not marked any of the answers as the answer I am looking for.
